Chenard's jazz-age funky cut-n-paste cubist appropriationist art urge the listener to step away from the computer and start dancing, or at least tap those toes. Funk, soul, jazz, and ethnic samples collide seamlessly and effortlessly in these groovy tracks, complemented by Chenard's equally groovy pop art cover graphics.
Originaly released on Webbed Hand Records in nov 2004.

Another winner from CW!
Wowzers, check this stuff out if you've got an ear for complex and suprising arrangements. This guy should probably be recognized in some kind of a way, cause his work is exceptional. "Hands" is wonderful (feels like a trip around the world inside your head), and its just one record in a massive collection of work from this guy. I figure the least I can do is offer some positive feedback since a TON of work has obviously gone into this music, but much more importantly, its Very Good Stuff. Made my ears real happy.

I am listening to the first piece, and am mesmerized-- completely pulled in. Various influences blend like the ingredients of a cool drink. . . a drink I will sip, finish, and enjoy.
